For Gordon Van Zandt, life was one of duty and loyalty to his country, so when 9/11 happened he dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps. This youthful idealism soon vanished, one fateful day in a war torn city in Iraq. Ten years later, he is still struggling with the ghosts of his past, but must now face a new reality thrust upon him and his family.
North America, Europe, and the Far East have all suffered a devastating Super-EMP attack that has caused catastrophic damage to the power grids and all electrical devices. With nothing working, from cars to phones, and the total collapse of the economic infrastructure, Gordon must fight for limited and fast dwindling resources. He knows survival requires action and cooperation with his neighbors, but as daily life continues to break down so does all sense of civility within his community. With each passing day, Gordon makes choices that would seem extreme in today's world, but necessary in this new world.
Great amount of parallel plots. Right amount of characters to weave in a good apocalypse story
Thought provoking, loved it, nicely done. Morton is great narrator. Hope book two is available soon I can't wait to learn about the road!!!
I’ve never taken the time to write a review before, but I feel I owe it to Mr. Hopf for giving me this story. Any who enjoys books on catastrophic and apocalyptic events will love this book and never forget it. I can’t recommend it enough and Mr. Hopf’s scenarios are completely possible and leave you waiting for the next book in the series. This book, and the ones that follow are the only books that have kept me up until sun up. Looking forward to reading his other work.
